This is Barry Frost’s personal website.

Sitting in today’s product demo at work and realising that my age now qualifies me for our “mature” online dating sites #oldfogey

Great memories of Chelmsford and gigs in my youth listening to @BBClamacqshow earlier tonight: The Army & Navy, The Y and @BassmentBar

Really happy to see that #webmention is now a W3C recommendation. πŸ‘ @aaronpk and all @indiewebcamp implementers.

Pushed my Micropub client live - Micropublish https://micropublish.net - just in time for the new year. Now time for a few drinks. Happy NY!

My 2017-01-01 IndieWeb commitment is to complete my rewrite of Micropublish to support Micropub updates, deletes and undeletes. My site’s Micropub endpoint supports these methods so I now need to bring my client up to date.

Performed by only the most skilled, a Lucky Barry is a crap where bog roll is only required for posterity. In essence it’s the perfect crap with no mess. Handy when attempting to take a crap in the woods. “There was no bog roll in the shitter, thank God it was a Lucky Barry.”

TIL: Lucky Barry.

London #indieweb people: join us at Homebrew Website Club tonight at 6pm in Covent Garden.

My MacBook Pro is almost always closed and plugged in to a display. I’d love to buy a wireless keyboard with TouchID for 1Password/Apple Pay.

Success rate of my Apple Watch unlocking my MacBook Pro is now in the 90s% πŸ‘

So I’ve been hacking away for a couple of months but I think I’m almost there with my new personal website/engine.

My aim has been to rebuild to support the latest Micropub draft specification, including full edits and deletes/undeletes via JSON, and pass the Micropub.rocks and Webmention.rocks test suites.

I’m now at 100% for both and I suppose all that’s left is to refactor a tiny bit, import my content, write it up and then push it live. It’s tempting to keep tinkering but I think I’ll learn more from selfdogfooding and getting it out in the wild.

A friend looking for a project mgmt job for 4 months asked for help from friends on Facebook. Within a week has 3 job offers. Recruitment.

The first @venntrodev “DevOps Friday” has begun: a day of improving the @wld platform. I’m learning about #golang to fix a broken tool.

This post has bold and italic text.

Micropub test of creating an h-entry with categories. This post should have two categories, test1 and test2

Micropub test of creating a basic h-entry

Enjoyed and learned something from each of the sessions at #mtpcon today, with ideas to take back to @venntrodev

When your house is on fire you don’t wait to see if it goes out by itself, you call 999 straight away.

@arseblog on Arsenal’s inaction over Centre Back injuries. Clearly negligent to start the season so unprepared.

Prompted by Calum publishing an indie event page for the next Homebrew Website Club meeting in London, I’ve modified this site to support sending RSVPs.

Nice way of prioritising features: wait until you have a use-case before building.

While I’m a staunch BBC supporter/defender, I can’t see the need or fit for its new BBC+ portal-style app. Surely it only invites further criticism from commercial rivals? http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2016/bbc-plus-app

As a user of an Advanced (Acorn) Risc Machines chip in my Archimedes in the 80s/90s, I’m a bit sad it’s being sold abroad http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36822806
